The All Progressives Congress says reinstatement of Abdulrasheed Maina, former Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Pension Reforms, into the Federal Civil Service was an embarrassment to the Federal Government.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Bolaji Abdullahi, stated this while speaking with journalists on Tuesday in Abuja.

He said that the development was unacceptable and also embarrassing to the party.

Mr. Maina was dismissed from the Federal Civil Service for abandoning his duty post and evading arrest for his involvement in the mismanagement of about N2 billion pension fund.

“We are all shocked like any other person. It is almost unbelievable that such a thing can happen.

“However, we are all delighted that President Muhammadu Buhari has taken very decisive punitive action against those that are involved.

“We are also delighted that he has ordered full scale investigation into the circumstances that led to this individual to be reinstated into the public office,’’ he said.

Mr. Abdullahi said that the APC believed that those that were part or found to be part of the development would face appropriate consequences.

He, however, debunked insinuations that the president was shielding the suspended Secretary to Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal and the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, NIA, Ayo Oke, over corruption investigation.

The APC spokesman expressed confidence that the president would do what was necessary and right under the situations in the best interest of the nation.

“Action will definitely be taken on them. I think we should just be kind and wait for the president to take action on that before we come to the conclusion that he has not acted,’’ he said.

    Hahaha, lol, this man talks like an ass hole, we shoud wait for president Buhari to take his time to study Babachir Lawal and Oke report befrore giving direcrion on the way forward for what is supposed to be a purey anti-graft agency, police and attorney general action item? There is no bigger embarassment than for Lachikwu to have mistakenly come out to announce $25B NNPC contract only for him to findout that Babu is not ignorant but is the main man who approved it and to cover up FG finally found a lying line to say no contract was awarded, both Kachikwu and Baru lied? Saving face is fr those who have face to save, this government is faceless and shameless.And what issuoosed to be a simle issuing of a query or queries is bei g requasted for report to be submotted by same corrupr aso rock elements who are involved in team work colussion. ALL OF THEM DON SEE BUBU FINISH, DEY USE HIM HEAD.

    Sorry, no credibility anymore. You are as corrupt as the PDP you replaced. Even worse, you are 20 times more nepotistic. You only dismissed Maina after all the newspapers screamed about it. You were caught out, Buhari. Admit it. The truth will set you free. You have no nobility in this case. In fact, you aided and abetted this criminal, making you one yourself. A nepotistic, incompetent one at that. We no wan hear!

    Rapid, immediate action needed on this issue or it will be viewed as foot dragging, indecisiveness, or worse, an administrative cover-up.

  • Bassey Frank

    Please, blame Jonathan or 16 wasted PDP years. If PMB was not aware of this scandalous matter, he is not in charge. If he is aware and pretends to be “innocent”, ……..

    They will soon be visited with Operation “Ape Shout”, by the Buhari and Buratai Army.
